Sometimes, it's very hard to face reality.
But a new MEME is floating around the web that is making Dallas Cowboys fans do just that.
First this week came the realization (and the huge backlash on Twitter) that the Cowboys just guaranteed Tony Romo 55 million.
Now, they realize there's another team who has more playoff wins in their own stadium then they do.
With the Michigan Wolverines defeating the Kansas Jayhawks and Florida Gators during the NCAA tournament this past weekend to advance to the Final Four, it gives the maize-and-blue two playoffs wins inside Cowboys Stadium.
The Cowboys, who have been playing in Jerry World since 2009 ... well, they only have one playoff win on their home turf.
So, of course, it didn't take long for rival Cowboys fans to make sure the boys in Big D new this statistic.
A MEME was created and has been spreading like wildfire on the Facebook profiles of Redskins, Eagles and Giants fans.
The top half of the picture displays the Michigan squad celebrating one of their wins in Dallas, the bottom half shows Romo and receiver Dez Bryant.
The text ... it is so true it hurts: "That awkward moment when the Michigan Wolverines have more playoff wins in Cowboys Stadium than the Dallas Cowboys."
But to be fair, this MEME could be much crueler. It does not point out the fact that the Cowboys are tied for second in playoff wins in their home stadium now with the Florida Gators.
